My Designated Free Speech Zone

I spotted this article on The Smirking Chimp about George Bush's Free Speech Zones:

Take Brett Bursey, a Columbia, S.C., man who is being prosecuted by U.S. attorneys for protesting an October 2002 visit by the president to his town. State officials dropped their charges soon after arresting Bursey for not moving to the "designated free speech zone"--leading us to believe that wherever the president speaks is not a free-speech zone--but five months later the feds decided to press charges, and Bursey's case went to court in November. A U.S. magistrate is to decide on his case sometime this month.

Something very dark is happening to our republic. America is my Designated Free Speech Zone and I refuse to move from it.
